Get electric eel as pet. Why? It would recharge in no time.

Otherwise, I think scientific should find a way to plug CI to human's natural electric to charge. What? Matrix said we're like a battery.

On Ebay, I bought a huge batch of good 675 batteries. They don't expire for two years.

It was a private sale, and I think someone died!

A little I guess. I thought it was kind of creepy to sell on the deaf relative's batteries, but not creepy enough that I didn't buy it very cheaply.

I use the rechargeable batteries all the time, but sometimes I forget to recharge them so i use the disposable batteries, and they actually last me 3 days!
